ASUS A78M-E FM2+ AMD A78 (Bolton D3) 6 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), yellow USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low Price, USB 3.0, SATA 6G, gigabit LAN, 8 channel audio and did I say low price.

Cons: Nothing. Perhaps 8 channel port outputs at the back would be nice but for the price, you cannot ask for more.

Other Thoughts: I paired this with a cheap AMD A4-7300. Use an old 125G SSD, an old case, old 4G memory, and an old monitor. Paying nothing for these old components, I spent $77 and built up a HTPC for the basement. The system just worked great. The installation has no problem at all. The system just up and running immediately after the installation, and is quite fast for a HTPC. It may exerts for multitasking, but running two or three applications including windows media center is not a problem at all. I am very happy with it and the AMD CPU.

SiliconDust HDHR3-CC HDHomeRun PRIME 3-Tuner US CableTV with CableCARD Stream Premium Channels and Cut the Cord
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Price is very reasonable for what they can do, Quality is superb as I do not have problems whatsoever with their hardware over several year use, Simple installation, but setup can be tedious depending on your network configuration. Hardware and software start to mature over the years. Generally pretty good support through email and forums. The forums do have pretty extensive information and help.

Cons: Setup for recording TV programs can be complex if Microsoft Media Center is not used. I tried with some other software but the results were just not as ideal as Media Center, which however, costs $99 extra over the regular Windows 8.1 and $9.99 over the Windows 8.1 Pro. Windows 7 premium and pro do come with Media Center free.

Other Thoughts: I started with the old design HDHomerun which do not use cable card and only play unencrypted clear QAM channels several years ago. Some time ago, Comcast channel broadcast format changed and only the HDHomerun Prime can be used with cable card. My wife loves TV recording so much that we ran out of tuners when she recorded 3 channels at a time. So, I bought another Prime to give me another 3 tuners. Note that you have to use a software (practically free) called TunerSalad to be able to use more than 4 cable card tuners in Microsoft Media Center. The total system with 2 Prime's, 3 TVs, 4 desktop computers and 2 laptops just work smoothly for watching and recording TV programs with almost no glitches. I used to have to reset the "receiver module" periodically. Now, I hardly have to do any reset anymore. It must be at least two months for me to reset anything. This can be attributed to the several software and hardware upgrades continuously by Silicondust. It also may be due to my switching from wireless connection to a dedicated network for strictly HDHomerun using powerline adapters and switches. This network is separated from the wireless network assessing internet. Each computer connected to the TV's have two NICs. I do not use high price premium equipment. Each NIC costs me only $15, the powerline adapters $39 for two. For less than $100, one can setup this 2nd network. So far, after several year use, the system works almost flawless.
Our HOA has a bulk contract with Comcast allowing us to have four outlets. I believe that for each outlet, you are entitled to one free cable card. 2nd card on the same device may require a monthly cost. Prime only requires one cable card, so I have two cable cards free of monthly charge. I read some people have cable card activation problems. The technicians installing both the first one and the second cable card had them working in less than 1/2 hour.

Panasonic ES-RW30-S Rechargeable Men's Wet/Dry Shaver w/ Dual Nanotech Blades
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap

Cons: No matter how hard I tried, I never got a satisfactory shave. I have to use the razor or another electric razor to finish the job. One time, I tried to press hard on the spring head to try to get a close shave, ending up hurting my skin.

Other Thoughts: Worst electric shaver among the dozen electric razors I ever bought.
